Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Great Grandma W. always wanted to make everyone happy. She once asked Pop Pop what he wanted for breakfast. She was making eggs, so he said an egg "sunny side up." When the egg yolk broke, she nearly threw it away before he could stop her! It took him a few minutes to convince her that he really wanted the egg before she was willing to serve the "imperfect" egg, which he happily gobbled down.
